Fresh and feisty, our twist on an American Amber Ale is aromatic and uplifting. Five malts mingle for a rich, complex flavor. Named after the Effra river, which now flows beneath urban Brixton, this ale is perfect for deep thirsts.

Kauge (410) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 30, 2014
Transferring some earlier reviews from my blog to RB. Mai 2014, (City Beverage, £ 2,60), 33 cl. Vasekarva ja hägune, vahumüts muljetavaldav, helebee˛ikas ja püsiv. Lõhn on väga mõnus, tugevalt linnasene, heinane, küps ja vürtsikas, kergelt greibise mõrksusega. Kehalt kergemapoolne, peaaegu ütleks isegi hõre, pehme, leebe mulliga. Männivaigune, heinatolmune, väikese greibivett meenutava mõrksusega... Pole just meeldejääv kraam, kuigi päris hea siiski. Siuke tsill ja pretensioonitu jook, mida oleks hea pärast füüsilist tööd värskes õhus kaduvas päevas juua.

Idiosynkrasie (4243) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 17, 2014
330ml bottle. Hazy amber colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Resinous, piney and herbal hoppy aroma. Taste is dry hoppy, astringent, woody, resinous, piney, close to, but not really nutty, the same is true concerning fruitiness; slightly papery and chalky finish. Natural, crafty, somehow "bio" and/or "öko", but not really tasty.

Lightly hazy amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and slightly soft. Mild fine carbonation. Light caramel malts, little dry cream. Dried fruits and mild twangy bitterness. Little ripe orange in the dry finish. Not bad, bit flabby.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2014
Cask at the White Horse, Parson’s Green on 5 April 2014. Poured a cloudy orange, with a rocky white head and some lacing. Malty aroma, some sweet orange and yeast. Initial flavours of orange, cooked fruit and grain. Finish was straw, light citrus and grass.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2014
Bottled Garibaldi Northampton 25/03/14. A reddy brown coloured beer with a whitish head. An amber ale with good hops and typical fruity seeet malts. Some chocolate on the nose. Malts aren’t too sweet and chewy and it’s quite tolerably an amber ale. A little thin to be honest.

Theydon_Bois (10377) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2014
Bottle, from Sourced, split with Yespr on the train to Hostelboro, 28/02/14. Hazed orange amber with a moderate light beige head. Nose is mandarin, bitter grapefruit, caramel, earthy hop notes. Taste comprises dankish hops, red grapefruit, pithy citrics, caramel. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a little hop bitterness. So so, a little clumsy in the make up.

yespr (32988) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 2, 2014
33 cl bottle. Hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is toasted malty and light grapefruity. Toasted malty, bitter and light herbal. Dry and light fruity into finish.

viktorvee (510) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2014
Nice, sweet red fruit vibe, burnt sugar, lovely amber colour, toffee malt, pronounced carbonation, low percentage, maybe fades a little quickly but pretty decent.

tommann (2921) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2014
330ml bottle. Pours red brown with a medium frothy head. Aroma is red fruits and some pine. Taste is toffee to start with a little pine on the finish. Very gassy.
